    1. Step 1

      Combine honey and water in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Peel, quarter and core pears. Cut each quarter in half. Add pears to tile honey syrup, reduce heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until tender (see microwave tip).

    2. Step 2

      To make the ricotta cream, place ricotta, icing sugar and cinnamon in a food processor bowl and process until combined. Serve pears with the ricotta cream.

    MICROWAVE TIP: Combine honey and water in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover with a lid or plastic wrap and cook for 3-4 minutes on High/850 watts/100%. Add pear to the syrup and cook, uncovered, for 20-12 minutes on Medium/500 watts/ 50% or until tender.
